Lesehinweise zum Thema „Taliban“

Posted by entdinglichung - 2. Oktober 2010

einige neue Artikel zum Thema

* Farooq Sulehria: Three myths about Taliban (Viewpoint)

„The anti-imperialism currently on display in the Muslim world is symbol rather than substance, signifying a new phase in the relations between two estranged lovers, fundamentalism and imperialism. The anti-imperialism of religious forces thus actually serves imperialism in the current global scenario. It is the anti-imperialism of fools, if at all.“

* Ali Arqam: Taliban vs Pashtuns (Viewpoint)

„Taliban are not by any means a representation of pashtuns as what we are witnessing today in the shape of the barbaric Talibanized militant values are not of hospitality and sanctuary as well as regard for women, children and family.“

* Farhat Taj: The case of Orakzai (Viewpoint)

„Both Shias and Sunnis all over Orakzai suffered atrocities at hands of the Taliban. The Taliban, especially those linked with the Punjab-based anti- Shia groups did everything to divide Orakzai on Shia-Sunni lines. No state help whatsoever was ever provided by the civil or military authorities to the Ali Khels for their anti-Taliban stance before or after the assassination of their tribal leadership.“

* Ishtiaq Ahmed: The Talibanization of Pakistan: threat abated! (Viewpoint)

„In some statements by the power elite, the threat from the Taliban was described as more serious than that posed by India. Frightened citizens began to discuss the Taliban scourge in their private circles.“

* C.M. Sennott: Taxpayer money funneled to Taliban (RAWA/Global Post)

„USAID report finds Afghan subcontractors were likely paying a „protection tax“ to local insurgents, including the Taliban.“

Drei Menschenrechtsaktivisten in Iranisch-Belutschistan droht die Ermordung durch den Staat

Three Baluch Citizens in Danger of Execution

19 , September , 2010

The Baluchestan Human Rights Activists Association has reported that 3 Baluch residents by the names of Naser Shahbakhsh, Lael Mohammad Shahbakhsh and Khaled Shahbakhsh are in danger of execution.

RAHANA: According to the report, the 3 citizens have been arrested solely because they are related to Haj Khodabakhsh Shahbalhsh, the leader of an armed opposition group. They were detained 6 months ago and are in danger of execution.

Naser’s family was able to visit him in prison after a long time. They have stated that Naser is in critical condition and is suffering from respiratory disorders because of torture he has been under and the place he has been held in.

Naser’s mother and the families of the other two prisoners are concerned as to the condition of the 3 prisoners since one of their other relatives (Shir Mohammad Shahbakhsh) who was detained along with their children has died under torture in the Zahedan Intelligence Ministry Detention Center.

It is notable that the state-run television Hamoun, had showed the pictures of Naser and had claimed that he is a detainee of the people’s resistance movement.

Spendenaufruf für die Flutopfer in Belutschistan

Posted by entdinglichung - 26. August 2010

Dringende Spenden zur Hilfe der pakistanischen Bevölkerung benötigt

25.08.2010

Massive Regenfälle haben weite Teile Belutschistans überflutet. Die Wasserdämme brachen und setzten die Menschen so ungeschützt dem Flutwasser aus. Mindestens drei Dörfer im Distrikt Sibi wurden zerstört. Nachdem ein Großteil von Khaiber Pukhtoonkhawa und dem südlichen Punjab bereits zerstört ist, haben die Regenfälle nun auch in Sindh zu großflächigen Überschwemmungen geführt. Häuser, Tierbestände, so wie Ziegen und Rinder, Haushaltsgüter, Kleidung, Schuhe und andere Gegenstände wurden vernichtet. Die Einwohner der Dörfer sind nun ohne Trinkwasser, Nahrung und Obdach und sie benötigen Kleidung. Gerade für Kinder und Frauen ist die Situation besonders schrecklich.

Im Zusammenhang mit dem fehlenden Trinkwasser, verbreiten sich Krankheiten in den betroffenen Gebieten äußerst schnell. Insbesondere Grippe, Diarrhoe und Cholera wurden als virulent festgestellt.

Die Reaktion der Regierung hat die Lage nur zugespitzt. Sie war nicht in der Lage umgehend zu handeln und hat damit zehntausende Menschen ohne Hilfe gelassen. Erst nach 24 Stunden wurde eine äußerst dürftige Menge an zu verteilenden Nahrungssäcken in die Behelfslager geschickt. Die Diskrepanz zwischen der Menge an Nahrung und der Anzahl der Hungernden hat zu Ausbrüchen von Kämpfen geführt wodurch die Lage der verzweifelten Menschen noch verschlimmert wurde.

Rubina Baluch, Sekretärin für Frauenangelegenheiten der Labour Party Pakistan (ArbeiterInnenpartei Pakistans) in Belutschistan und Einwohnerin eines der betroffenen Dörfer sagte: „Es gibt hier absolut nichts mehr: Nahrung, Wasser und Kleidung sind Dinge, die wir verzweifelt brauchen!“ Mehr als 20 Millionen Menschen leiden unter diesen schwerwiegenden Umständen. 1600 sind bereits direkt an der Flut oder an den Folgen gestorben, über 5 Millionen haben keine Unterkunft. Zwar hat die UN weltweit zu Spenden aufgerufen, die Reaktionen darauf halten sich jedoch bisher in Grenzen.

Da sich auch die Regierung unfähig zeigt, mit der Katastrophe umzugehen, profitieren momentan religiöse FundamentalistInnen von der Flut. In vielen Gebieten sind sie die einzigen, die Hilfe leisten.

Die Labour Party Pakistan reagiert auf diese Misere und wird einen Konvoi mit Hilfsgütern zu den betroffenen Menschen organisieren. Dafür ist sie aber auf Spenden angewiesen. Der Revolutionär Sozialistische Bund unterstützt diese Aktion und führt deshalb zusammen mit anderen Organisationen in Europa (z.B. der Ligue Communiste Revolutionnaire (LCR) aus Belgien und Socialistische Alternatieve Politiek (SAP) aus den Niederlanden eine Unterstützungskampagne durch. Die darin eingenommenen Spenden werden direkt (und selbstverständlich ohne Abzüge!) an das Spendenkonto der Labour Party Pakistan überwiesen und dort für den Hilfskonvoi eingesetzt.

Spenden für die Unterstützung der Flutopfer können auf das folgende Konto überwiesen werden:

Thies Gleiss Sonderkonto; Kto.Nr. 478 106-507

Postbank Köln (BLZ 370 100 50)

Verwendungszweck: Flutkatastrophe Pakistan

Solidarität mit den trauernden Müttern im Iran

Wir solidarisieren uns mit den Müttern im Iran, die sich regelmäßig am Samstag in Teheran versammeln, Sie protestieren gegen die Verhaftung, Verschleppung und auch Hinrichtung ihrer Kinder. Nach den heftig umstrittenen Wahlen im Juni 2009 war es bei Demonstrationen zu schweren Ausschreitungen des Regimes gegen die eigene Bevölkerung gekommen. Unzählige Menschen wurden festgenommen und mit schweren physischen und psychischen Methoden bedroht und gefoltert. In vielen Fällen hat das zum Tod der Festgenommenen geführt.

Durch diese Protestaktion versuchen diese Mütter ein gerichtliches Untersuchungsverfahren durchzusetzen. Sie wollen wissen, wo sich ihre Kinder befinden, ob sie gefoltert, vergewaltigt oder vielleicht sogar schon hingerichtet wurden. Die Mütter fordern eine Gefangenen und eine Verurteilung der Verantwortlichen und Freilassung aller politischen Gefangenen.

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen, Freundinnen und Freunde, Es ist daher wichtig, dass wir auch in Kiel, wie viele Städte in der Welt, =uns mit diesen Müttern solidarisieren. Wir werden uns jeden zweiten Samstag (ab morgen 30.01.2010) von 14.00 bis 15.00 Uhr am Asmus- Bremer-Platz sammeln.“

5.) Warum Ahmadinejad nicht „progressiv“ ist (Iran Labor Report):

Ahmadinejad a Progressive?

Ahamdi’s anti-imperialsim is a myth; so are his supposed leftist credentials.

Network of Iranian Labor Unions (NILU)

There is a fiction going about in some progressive circles around the world according to which Ahmadinejad is a great nationalist crusader, that he is a champion of the poor and that he is a man of the people. This is certainly shocking to the ears of most Iranians (including many Iranian workers) who consider their president to be a demagogue and a petty dictator. Let’s look at the facts in detail:

Subsidies Rationalization Plan. The government’s Economic Reform Plan first introduced in March 2008 followed up by the Doctor-Jekyll-like Subsidies Rationalization Plan is a carbon copy of the IMF prescriptions for neo-liberal restructuring. Its center piece is the wholesale axing of national subsidies within 5 years starting from January 2009.

One of the few victories of Iranian working class from the 1979 revolution has been the constitutionally-guaranteed right of the Iranian people to make free use of billions of dollars in assistance provided in the form of state subsidies. Gasoline users, bakeries, city bus commuters, and consumers of public utilities are among the tens of millions of people who have benefited to one degree or other from this policy. For instance, bus commuters in urban areas pay only about a tenth of the fares they would have otherwise paid. Gasoline is only 40 cents per liter. Cooking gas is a fifth of its so-called market rate, etc, etc.
It is important to note that these benefits were not a result of an act of generosity or some kind of government largess but an achievement wrought by the sacrifice and blood of millions of Iranians. It is now all coming to an end. Ahmadinejad government has brazenly set about ending this 30-year arrangement with a fanatical zeal. Starting this January, subsidies will be cut in large increments. In this, the government is supported by the majority of the country’s ruling factions who expect to grab various chunks of the bonanza. (Significantly, opposition figure Mir Hossein Mousavi has sharply criticized the plan as ill-advised and misguided.)

Le Comité International contre les Exécutions appelle toutes les organisations des droits humains, partis politiques, organismes concernés et institutions à travers le monde à se mobiliser contre les exécutions et la peine de mort en Iran.“

laut Street Journalist wurden 11 politische Gefangene auf Grund ihrer Teilnahme an den Post-Wahl-Protesten in Tehran zu „Feinden Gottes“ erklärt und zum Tode verurteilt und zwei weitere am gestrigen Tage ermordet, Human Rights Activists in Iran meldet das Verschwindenlassen eines weiteren politischen Gefangenen, zu den von der Ermordung bedrohten Oppositionellen zählen offenbar auch zwei regimekritische Blogger

ansonsten hier noch der Hinweis auf eine Meldung aus ISKU zu einer Frauendemonstration in Mersin (Türkei) gegen die Todesstrafe im Iran

Vier GenossInnen in Pakistan tödlich verunglückt

Posted by entdinglichung - 15. Dezember 2009

Quelle: Labour Party Pakistan (LPP)

Four LEF leaders died in road accident

Farooq Tariq

Najma Khanum, Rehana Kausar and Abdul Salam Salam along with their driver Wahid Baluch lost their lives in a tragic traffic incident at Omara in Baluchistan on 13 December evening. Their car trying to save a donkey turned upside down that came suddenly on the main road. Comrade Abdul Salam was seriously injured, while going to hospital, the ambulance got stuck at a place where there was a overflow of water in a stream that has blocked the road. He spent whole night at the place as there was no way out; he died in the morning at a hospital on 14 December. While, Mohammed Rafiq Baluch president National Trade Union Federation, received minor injuries during the accident is out of danger. The driver Mohammed Wahid Baluch was younger brother of Mohammed Rafiq Baluch.

All five were returning from a consultation meeting at Gwadar on the issue of organizing home based women workers. The meeting was organized by Labour Education Foundation and 31 trade unions, social activists and government labour official participated in the day long consultation on government home based workers national policy document. Earlier, the five attend two other meetings of home based workers in Pasni and Gawadar to discuss the expansion of Home Based Women Workers Association, an organization that was set up few months back in Pakistan.

Najma Khanum joined Labour Education Foundation in 2003 and was one of the senior staff members at Karachi LEF office. She was elected counselor from Gadap Town Karachi and a known social activist. She had participated actively in lawyer’s movement and was part of the rally on 12 May 2007 that came under fire from MQM goons. She narrowly escaped at the time. Najma Khanum joined Labour Party Pakistan in 2007 and took part actively in all the demonstrations and rallies of LPP in Karachi. She travelled extensively in Sind to organize the work of LEF and also the political work of LPP. Najma Khanum was part of the delegation from Pakistan which attended the People SAARC Sri Lanka in 2008.

Rehana Kausar (26), a young women activist joined LEF in 2007 and later became member of LPP as well. A fine orator, she was very active in the formation of home based women workers in the province.

Comrade Abdul Salam Salam was former secretary of Labor Party Pakistan Karachi chapter. He recently voluntarily paved the way for a younger comrade Mukhtiar Raho to be elected as secretary LPP in Karachi. Comrade Salam was member of editorial board of Weekly Mazdoor Jeddojuhd and was a leading trade unionist at a textile factory. He recently won his reinstatement at the factory by an order of a labour court after few years of fighting for his reinstatement. He joined LEF as a union organizer and was instrumental in helping many trade unions in training and registrations. He was running a literary website in Pashto language.

Comrade Wahid Baluch was younger brother of Rafique Baluch, the main leader of one of the radical trade union federation of Pakistan, the National Trade Union Federation. He was always there to help his elder brother by driving him around the province.

All the four dead had a dream of building a strong union for the home based women workers. They had already held a very successful convention with over 500 women at Hyderabad to start the Home Based Women Workers Association last month. They were travelling in several cities and towns to organize this most unorganized sector.

LEF and LPP lost their four of their best comrades in Sindh. The three had made LEF and LPP work in Karachi and Sindh as a main priority of their lives. The working class in Pakistan is poorer now without these four untiring crusaders of their class. They all believed in a Socialist society free of exploitation and for free education and health facilities.

They all lost their lives to safe the live of one animal, a donkey. The very poor infrastructure of the roads in Baluchistan means accidents like this very often. Comrade Salam lost his lives waiting on the road side for the whole night where his ambulance was stuck because of over flow of a stream. He was also a victim of very poor infrastructure.

I have met all of them many times. Comrade Salam was the intellectual backbone of LPP and LEF in Sindh, while Najma Khanum and Rehana Kausar were tireless activists for women and workers rights. Najma Khanum was particularly known in her community for social work and political education. She was always ready to talk politics and activities to promote politics and workers rights.

Red solute to comrades who are no more with us now.

1.) Seiten mit regelmässig aktualisierter Berichterstattung: Revolutionary Road, News from the struggles in Iran (HOPI), Révolution en Iran, Rise of The Iranian People und LabourStart.

2.) Der regierende reaktionäre Block zeigt stärkere Desintegrationstendenzen, erst musste Ahmadinejad auf Anordnung von Khamenei seinen designierten Vize Mashai rauswerfen (zusätzlich auch noch Schwiegervater von Ahmadinejads Sohn), dann warf Ahmadinejad im Gegenzug zwei Minister, Safar-Harandi („Minister of Islamic Guidance“, was auch immer das sein soll) und den Geheimdienstminister Mohseni Ejeyi aus dem Kabinett, der Regierungsblock scheint angeschlagen zu sein.

4.) Iran Human Rights berichtet von der drohenden Ermordung einer Frau mittels Steinigung in Tabriz:

„A woman identified as Sakineh Mohammadi, is in danger of being stoned to death by the Iranian authorities in the northwestern Iranian city of Tabriz, wrote the human rights lawyer Mohammad Mostafaei in his weblog.

Mohammad Mostafaei who has taken the responsibility of defending Sekineh writes: Sekineh Mohammadi who has been in the central prison of Tabriz the last four years is convicted of adultry. She was previously sentenced to 99 lashes for adultry and the sentence has already been carried out.

Besides the lashes, she has also been sentenced to death by stoning. The stoning verdict has been approved by the supreme court and is in the section for implementation of the verdict, according to Mr. Mostafaei.

Mohammad Mostafaei has already written a letter to head of the Iranian judiciary Mahmoud Shahroudi, asking him to remove the stoning verdict.

According to Mr. Mostafaei, Sekineh is at imminent danger of death by stoning.“

5.) Weitere fortgesetzte Repression in den sunnitischen Minderheitenregionen Kurdistan und Belutschistan:

The has been reproted that people of Kurdistan are angry about the arrest of Hasan Amini and they are worried that he will be mistreated by the secuirty forces.

6.) Bilder vom weltweiten Aktionstag vom letzten Sonnabend auf Revolutionary Road

7.) Aus einem Aufruf von 42 Menschenrechtsorganisationen aus dem arabischen Raum:

„The undersigned organizations regret that the Iranian people, who made enormous sacrifices to rid of themselves of the former dictatorial regime, must once more suffer through the equally tyrannical rule of the Islamic Republic. The worst violations characterizing the previous dark era have been incessantly resumed—namely through torture, arbitrary detentions, extra-judicial killing, and suppression of the political opposition, and social cultural freedoms – under the cloak of religious notions and authorities, which Iran’s ruling clerical elites take shelter.“

Iran-Update 20.07. 2009 – Marg Bar Jomhuriye Eslami!

1.) Seiten mit regelmässig aktualisierter Berichterstattung: Revolutionary Road, News from the struggles in Iran (HOPI), Révolution en Iran, Rise of The Iranian People und LabourStart.

2.) Weitere Filmberichte von den Demos in Tehran vom Freitag gibt es hier, von den gestrigen Protesten in Shiraz hier … für den morgigen Tag ist wie Ali Schirasi berichtet, eine weitere Protest-Stromausfall während der Abendnachrichten des Regierungssenders um 21 Uhr geplant:

„Am 30. Tir 1388 (21. Juli 2009) um 21:00 soll im Iran das Licht ausgehen. In Gedenken an die Opfer der Unterdrückung vom 30. Chordad (Sa, 20. Juni 2009), zu denen auch die junge Iranerin Neda Agha-Soltan(i) gehört, sollen mindestens drei Millionen iranische Familien am Dienstag, den 21. Juli, Punkt 9:00 zum Ertönen des letzten Zeitzeichens vor den staatlichen iranischen Nachrichten ein stromfressendes Gerät (Bügeleisen, Staubsauger, Fön, Warmwasserboiler) in die Steckdose stecken und für 3 Minuten in Betrieb nehmen. Bei einer Leistung des iranischen Stromnetzes von 3000 Megawatt und einem zusätzlichen Verbrauch von 1000 Watt pro Familie (1000 Watt mal 3.000.000 Geräte macht 3000 Megawatt) dürfte dies ausreichen, das iranische Stromnetz zum Zusammenbruch zu bringen, selbst wenn das Regime, das ja von der Aktion weiß, sich startklar macht, um zusätzliche Anlagen in Betrieb zu nehmen.“

3.) Die bekannte Feministin Shadi Sadr wurde am Freitag von Regierungsschlägern verschleppt und wird weiterhin im Evin-Knast festgehalten

* Ahmadineschad fordert schärfere Haftbedingungen (Ali Schirasi)
* The Unknown Condition of Mr. Dadkhah a prominent Human Rights Attorney (Human Rights Activists in Iran)

5.) Speziell in den als „unruhig“ geltenen „Minderheitenregionen“ wie Kurdistan und Belutschisten ist die Repression derzeit besonders scharf wogegen sich auch bewaffneter Widerstand regt:
* Kaboudvand put on trial again by Iranian regime (Human Rights Organization of Kurdistan)
* Yunes Aghayan, member of „Ahl-e hagh“ was hanged in Iran on July 12 (Iran Human Rights, bei den Ahl-e hagh handelt es sich um eine heterodoxe schiitische, den AlevitInnen ähnelnde Glaubensgemeinschaft, welche in kurdisch- und lurischsprachigen Gebieten im Iran 500.000-1.000.000 AnhängerInnen zählt)
* Exile, torture of a young Kurdish in Orumiyeh and Tehran (Eastkurd)

* A Kurdish teacher was killed in Orumiyeh prison (Eastkurd)
* Iran: A member of the Kurdish Teachers Association Arrested in Saqez (Eastkurd)
* Iran:3 people will be executed soon in Zahedan (Eastkurd, laut Regierungsangaben handelt es sich um u.a. um ein Mitglied der belutschischen sunnitisch-islamistischen Jundallah)
* Iran cracks down as Baluch rebels (Eastkurd)

6.) Zur Situation in den Repressionsorganen:

* English translations – Meeting of Iran Sec Forces Commanders farsi audio! (Revolutionary Road)
* Thirty-six army officers arrested in Iran over protest plan. Officers planned to attend sermon by former president Hashemi Rafsanjani in military uniform (The Guardian)

7.) Ein Aufruf der Worker-communism Unity Party zur Bildung revolutionärer Basisstrukturen:

„1. Once again the Iranian society is at the verge of a magnificent and historic development. People have given their verdict to overthrow the Islamic regime and are in the process of doing just that. Any progress of the mass protest movement to overthrow the regime in the most organised and least painful fashion is dependent on the formation of people’s organisations, the councils in the country.

2. One aim of the councils is for people and the workers to seize power. The councils are tools for uniting, organising the revolutionary and libertarian struggle of the workers and toilers in negation of capitalism and the Islamic Republic. Councils are also the organs of uprising against the Islamic Republic. Councils should be formed everywhere, locally and nationally in the neighbourhoods and work places.

3. Councils are the most efficient, suitable and simplest organisation to unite and implement people’s power. They safeguard the direct and consistent intervention of people and must replace the power of Islamic reaction.

4. The working class must build its councils with haste. Councils facilitate the unity of worker’s ranks, their class independence and implementation of worker’s control. Councils provide the possibility of the emergence of the working class as the suitable leading force of the movement to overthrow the regime. Socialist workers must be in the forefront of formation of the councils at work and neighbourhoods.

5. Neighbourhood councils are of great importance at this crucial time. Even the practical experience of recent events has shown that local gatherings and protest organisations are the basic organising force in the protest movement, especially in setting up demonstrations at nights. The control of all areas must be taken over from the Islamic Republic and its suppressive forces.

6. Worker-communism Unity Party calls upon workers and the people to build councils.“

Iran-Update 14.07. 2009 – Marg Bar Jomhuriye Eslami!

Posted by entdinglichung - 14. Juli 2009

Weitere Artikel zum Thema auf dieser Seite unter https://entdinglichung.wordpress.com/category/iran/:

1.) Seiten mit regelmässig aktualisierter Berichterstattung: Revolutionary Road, News from the struggles in Iran (HOPI), Révolution en Iran, Rise of The Iranian People und LabourStart.

2.) Das Regime hat am heutigen Morgen in Zahedan 13 Menschen ermordet/hingerichtet, denen Mitgliedschaft in der bewaffneten sunnitisch-islamistischen belutschischen Organisation Joundallah („Soldaten Gottes“) vorgeworfen wurde. Laut Revolutionary Road droht Joundallah im Gegenzug mit (weiteren) Terrorakten:

„The executions, according to the state radio, took place in Zahedan, 930 miles (1,500km) south-east of Tehran. Jundallah has carried out bombings, kidnappings and killings in the area in recent years.

Irna said that the men were to be hanged in public, but the authorities decided at the last minute to execute them inside Zahedan’s main prison. State radio had earlier reported that the executions took place in public.

The area where Jundallah is active is a key smuggling point for drugs – mainly opium – and is the scene of frequent clashes between police and traffickers.

Iranian authorities say Jundallah has close ties to „foreign forces“ in neighbouring Afghanistan, a possible reference to al-Qaida.“

3.) Aus der Praxis: Operation blackout with the help of hair straighteners:

„At exactly the same time we all plugged in our most electricity guzzling household appliances: hair strengtheners, irons, hair dryers etc. By doing this we were aiming to overload Tehran’s surrounding power stations one by one.

We’ve already tried several times. On Tuesday [7 July] it was just before Ahmadinejad’s speech on TV that the messages appeared on Twitter, Facebook and Balatarin [Iranian news sharing site]: ‘Please plug in your electrical appliances as soon as Ahmadinejad appears on TV‘. It doesn’t seem to have worked in the city centre but I was told that the towns of Ahvaz, Ispahan, Racht, Sari and some districts of Karaj were plunged into darkness. At the same time, people ran out onto the rooftops and shouted ‘death to the dictator!‘ Even television programming was interrupted because the IRIB [Iranian state TV] had to transfer to an emergency generator [not verified].

Rather than taking to the streets in protest, now we’re organising things like operation blackout – we cause traffic jams as an excuse to honk our horns, graffiti the walls etc. We are however doing a demonstration in front of Tehran University today. It’s the anniversary of the 1999 student revolt. We might well start demonstrating again.““

4.) Die taz interviewte eine in der BRD im Exil lebende Aktivistin der Frauenbewegung aus Iranisch-Kurdistan:

„Ich hatte bis Mitte der 1990er Jahre eine Geburtshilfeklinik in einem ländlichen Grenzgebiet zum Irak. Dadurch hatte ich viel Kontakt zu Frauen, die von ihren Männern misshandelt wurden. Politische Organisierung außerhalb des Regimes gab es nur in Form der kurdischen Parteien, doch auch diese wurden von Männern beherrscht. Frauen konnten dort nicht für ihre Rechte sprechen. Das haben wir versucht aufzubrechen. Ich habe Frauen zusammengebracht, damit sie in den Parteien Strukturen aufbauen und sich so gegen die patriarchale Unterdrückung zur Wehr setzen. Außerdem war ich in der kurdischen Freiheitsbewegung aktiv.

Ging das lange gut?

Nein. Es gab gewisse Freiräume, weil die islamische Republik die kurdischen Provinzen nie hundertprozentig unter Kontrolle hatte. Doch eines Abends kam eine Patientin zu mir. Ihr Mann arbeitete beim Geheimdienst. Sie sagte mir, dass ich unter Beobachtung stehe und aufpassen solle. Mein Vater hat früher gegen das Schah-Regime und später gegen Khomeini gekämpft. Insgesamt saß er über sechs Jahre im Gefängnis und hat durch Folter beide Beine verloren. Unter anderem deshalb verließ ich sofort das Land, als diese Warnung kam.“

* Babak Kia: Backing popular upsurge key task for international left. Crisis of the Iranian regime and popular mobilisation (International Viewpoint)
* Farooq Sulehria: Ahmedinajad and the anti-imperialism of fools (ESSF)

„Anti-imperialism stands for — as anti-imperialism should — liberation. It is liberation for all the exploited, from all sorts of exploitation. Anti-imperialism includes national liberation, women’s emancipation, democratization, political and economic empowerment, respect for religious minorities, and self-determination for oppressed nationalities. Anti-imperialism is freedom for all oppressed, from all oppression.

In contrast, Ahmedinejad, or Osama ben Laden for that matter, offer an anti-imperialism that does not tolerate these values. Theirs is an anti-imperialism that chokes minorities, strangles smaller nationalities and reduces women to bodies-sans-minds hidden under thick burkas.

One cannot be a liberator and an oppressor at the same time. The anti-imperialism that upholds Ahmedinejad as its poster boy does not solve this contradiction. We have seen this anti-imperialism in Afghanistan under the Taliban where it was reduced to the burka and massacre of minorities. Al-Qaeda is the non-state portrayal of this brand of anti-imperialism: bombings, kidnappings, hijackings.

The anti-imperialism currently on display in the Muslim world is symbolic and not of substance. It signifies a new phase in the relationship between two estranged lovers, fundamentalism and imperialism. It is the product of the process run by imperialism in collaboration with fundamentalism, to eliminate genuine anti-imperialism in the Muslim world.“

Iran-Update 08.07. 2009

Posted by entdinglichung - 8. Juli 2009

Weitere Artikel zum Thema auf dieser Seite unter https://entdinglichung.wordpress.com/category/iran/:

1.) Seiten mit regelmässig aktualisierter Berichterstattung: Revolutionary Road (hier auch ein Update vom gestrigen Tag), News from the struggles in Iran (HOPI), Révolution en Iran, Rise of The Iranian People und LabourStart.

2.) Ein Aufruf von Iran Solidarity:

„In June 2009 millions of people came out on to the streets of Iran for freedom and an end to the Islamic regime. Whilst the June 12 election was a pretext for the protests – elections have never been free or fair in Iran – it has opened the space for people to come to the fore with their own slogans.

The world has been encouraged by the protestors’ bravery and humane demands and horrified by the all-out repression they have faced. It has seen a different image of Iran – one of a population that refuses to kneel even after 30 years of living under Islamic rule.

The dawn that this movement heralds for us across the world is a promising one – one that aims to bring Iran into the 21st century and break the back of the political Islamic movement internationally.

This is a movement that must be supported.

Declaration

We, the undersigned, join Iran Solidarity to declare our unequivocal solidarity with the people of Iran. We hear their call for freedom and stand with them in opposition to the Islamic regime of Iran.

We demand:

1. The immediate release of all those imprisoned during the recent protests and all political prisoners

2. The arrest and public prosecution of those responsible for the current killings and atrocities and for those committed during the last 30 years

3. Proper medical attention to those wounded during the protests and ill-treated and tortured in prison. Information on the status of the dead, wounded and arrested to their families. The wounded and arrested must have access to their family members. Family members must be allowed to bury their loved ones where they choose.

4. A ban on torture

5. The abolition of the death penalty and stoning

6. Unconditional freedom of expression, thought, organisation, demonstration, and strike

7. Unconditional freedom of the press and media and an end to restrictions on
communications, including the internet, telephone, mobiles and satellite television programmes

8. An end to compulsory veiling and gender apartheid

9. The abolition of discriminatory laws against women and the establishment of complete equality between men and women

10. The complete separation of religion from the state, judiciary, education and religious freedom and atheism as a private matter.

Moreover, we call on all governments and international institutions to isolate the Islamic Republic of Iran and break all diplomatic ties with it. We are opposed to military intervention and economic sanctions because of their adverse affects on people’s lives.

The people of Iran have spoken; we stand with them.“

3.) Ein schon einige Wochen altes aber erst jetzt online gestelltes Statement des Congress of Nationalities for a Federal Iran zum Ausgang der Wahlen, der CNFI ist ein Bündnis von 16 bürgerlichen und sozialdemokratischen Exil- und Untergrundorganisationen (darunter die PDK-I, KOMALA und mehrere Gruppen aus Aserbaidschan und Belutschistan) der nationalen Minderheiten im Iran

An announcement on recent election in Iran

The Islamic regime in Iran shows no respect for the real outcome of the elections that took place under its own non-democratic frame works and discriminatory procedures on 12 June 2009. The regime carried out a political coup instead, in order to maintain the Supreme Leader’s favoured candidate, Mr Ahmadinejad, in power.

Iranian people have repeatedly had nationally and regionally revolutions in the past century to achieve your civil and democratic rights, but each victory again and again became confiscated and robbed by the coup makers to stabilize their dictatorship and autocracy.

Again another coup took place, under the guidance and support of Iranian religious Supreme Leader “Walye faqih Ali Khamenei” by his led Revolutionary Guards and Basijis to keep Ahmadinejad his favourite president in power.

In reply to this coup you the people of Iran have risked your life and gone out on the streets, displayed through a major historical mass demonstration in millions, and showing your discourse and anger to the rulers of Iran and the world. You have come out to defeat the dictators and to achieve all the civil rights that you have been deprived of during the recent century.

You have come to the streets for your rights with regard to: civil rights, democracy, the equality before the law, right to elect and be elected without discrimination in a free of cheating election, and the right to have access to modern and free mass media.

The problem is not just Ahmadinejad and Khamenei. The problem lies in the Iranian political system’s nature with its structure based on an absolute dictatorship in the form of “welayete faqih“. This problem has no stable solution but dealing with its roots’ factors in a radical way. The roots lie in the current Iranian Constitution and the relationship between the government and citizens of Iran that are shaped and channelled in a dictatorial and widespread discriminative way. The effective continuity and sustainability of the current fight and mass protest will ensure the achievement of our democratic and civil rights.

We the political parties and organizations in the “Congress of Nationalities for a Federal Iran= CNFI” condemn the cheating and brutalities of the Islamic Regime of Iran against its own people and support people’s fight for their democratic, just and fair demands of abolishing the fraudulent 10th presidency election.

The people of Iran who are composed of several nationalities with diverse cultural, religious and social origins are in need of a united fight more than ever during the current sensitive campaign.

Once again we support your struggle throughout Iran, and condemn the regime’s cruel actions by the brutal massacre that took place during the peaceful mass demonstration on last Monday. We extend our friendship and solidarity hands to all Iranian democratic forces for cooperation and a united campaign against the dictatorship for a decentralized democratic and a plural political system in Iran.

The Congress of Nationalities for a Federal Iran (CNFI), June 19, 2009″

4.) Aus einem Aufruf der Organisation for Women’s Liberation an die Frauen im Iran:

„Your struggles against the misogynous regime of Islamic Republic have gained great respect and admiration by the world. Your struggles are being followed by the world. Your admirable bravery against the armed Islamic thugs and your resolute resistance against suppression and violence demonstrate your deepest ambition for freedom. Now, even the most unaware and ambivalent “experts on Iran” too have realised this truth that Iran is not an Islamic society and that people of Iran want freedom, equality and an end to the Islamic regime. The extensive presence of women in the forefront of the mass protest movement against the regime showed the existence of a mass movement for women’s liberation. The latter has become the symbol of people’s movement against the Islamic regime. It is not coincidental that Neda, the young brave girl who was shot by the Islamic thugs in the recent unrests and lost her life, has become the symbol of people’s movement against the regime.“

5.) Aus einem Interview mit einem im Exil lebenden iranischen Marxisten in der aktuellen Avanti:

„Hinter den Massenprotesten steht überhaupt keine Organisation. Mussavi hat zwar über seine Internetseite einen gewissen Einfluss gehabt, weil er mit seiner Erklärung zum Wahlausgang und zu den anschließenden ersten Kundgebungen Signale gegeben hat. Aber alles, was sich danach entwickelt hat, war spontan. Die Studentenorganisationen, die in den späten 90er Jahren demonstriert haben, sind alle brutal zerschlagen worden. Von ihnen haben nur einzelne Menschen die Repression überlebt und sind nicht ins Gefängnis gekommen oder umgebracht worden. Heute gibt es keine nennenswerten Organisationen. Bei den Arbeitern überwiegt noch die Angst und es gibt aufgrund der Repression keine landesweiten Organisationen.

Die Proteste sind in ihrer Anfangsphase vor allem von den Menschen getragen worden, die noch nie politisch aktiv waren, die aber die Schnauze voll haben von den Vorschriften der Regierung. Die Proteste werden gerade blutig niedergeknüppelt, aber man kann nicht Hunderttausende ins Gefängnis stecken. Sie werden sich organisieren. Die erste Form des anhaltenden Widerstands ist das Demonstrieren auf den Dächern. Dort rufen sie „Allah hu Akbar“ (Gott ist groß). Das ist kein Bekenntnis zur islamischen Republik, sondern ein Hilferuf und Protest, ein Ruf, der auch von Nicht-Religiösen gebraucht wird.“

6.) Aus einem auf der Webseite von Human Rights Activists in Iran dokumentierten Gutachten hoher Geistlicher zur im Iran illegalen Bahai-Religion (~ 1% der Bevölkerung):

„Response of the Ayatollahs to the Questions in Regards to Baha’is

Ayatollah Khamenei:

All followers of the misled Baha’i sect are infidels and unclean. Muslims should not come in touch with food and other substances containing moisture that is touched by Baha’is. The believers should counter this sect’s sedition and corruption.

Ayatollah Behjat:

They are unclean. Believers should not socially interact with them.

Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi:

All kinds of interaction, socializing, marriage, buying, selling and other contact with the misled Baha’i sect is forbidden. Muslims must totally refrain from such actions.

The followers of the misled Baha’i sect are not Muslims and all interaction with them is forbidden.“

7.) Aus einem (offenen?!) Brief von Mehdi Mahdavikia zum Zustand des iranischen Fussballs:

„The last word is toward those whom have called the Team-e-Meli player s traitors!

Are you able to provide any evidence to prove what you have said about the Team-e-Meli players? Players whom have played for the team without any concerns about money and by bearing hard and long, Team-e-Meli camps and with all the mental pressures from playing important games which would change the fate of the team! Away from their families for long times, just to make their people happy and bring glory to their country! Players whom done everything they could to defend Iran’s name and soccer not only in Asia, but also worldwide and in European leagues!

They haven’t done all these hard work so now you few people call them with these undeserved names! I suggest that once you put your heads on the pillow at night think about conscience and dignity so the next morning before you perform any task you think of these two important values of human being and call the Team-e-Meli players with well-deserved names.“

Iran-Update 27.06. 2009

Aufgrund von Zeitmangel heute nur ein Kurzupdate, weitere Artikel zum Thema auf dieser Seite unter https://entdinglichung.wordpress.com/category/iran/:

1.) Seiten mit regelmässig aktualisierter Berichterstattung: Revolutionary Road, News from the struggles in Iran (HOPI), Révolution en Iran, Rise of The Iranian People und LabourStart, … Revolutionary Road berichtet folgendes vom heutigen Tage:

„At least three people were wounded in clashes between Tehran residents and the Islamic Republic’s Forces on Saturday in the city center.
The clashes occurred on Towhid Street and Keshavarz Boulevard as Police tried to stop people from entering Laleh Park to attend a rally called for by the mothers of those killed during the recent nationwide protests. They also planned to honor the memory of Neda Agha Soltan.
Meanwhile, the Bazaaris have called for a strike. Trading has come to a halt today and the Bazaar is virtually closed.
The carpet Bazaar has been closed today following the call for today’s protest.

>>>The Riot police & plain clothes attacked protesters today afternoon in streets leading to Laleh Park in Tehran. At least three persons were arrested.
“Since 5 pm (Tehran time), people have been going to Laleh Park in order to continue their anti-government protests. Riot police And Plain clothes have been stationed in all streets and alleys leading to Laleh Park including Enqelab Square.

Iran-Update 26.06. 2009

Posted by entdinglichung - 26. Juni 2009

Weitere Artikel zum Thema auf dieser Seite unter https://entdinglichung.wordpress.com/category/iran/ … der Informationsfluss ist ein wenig spärlicher geworden, auch scheint das Thema für die bürgerlichen Medien allmählich an Wichtigkeit zu verlieren:

1.) Seiten mit regelmässig aktualisierter Berichterstattung: Revolutionary Road, News from the struggles in Iran (HOPI), Révolution en Iran, Rise of The Iranian People und LabourStart

2.) Ali Schirasi berichtet über die offenbar ungebrochenen Proteste in Zahedan, der Hauptstadt der traditionell unruhigen Region Sistan & Baluchistan

3.) Ein Bericht von der Seite des IWSN zu einem Lohnstreik am 22. Juni in Sanandaj/Iranisch-Kurdistan, die ganze Region soll am 23. Juni mehr oder weniger vollständig bestreikt worden sein:

Sanandaj Communication Office workers go on strike

The workers of the service line unit of the Ferdowsi branch of the Sanandaj Communication Office went on strike on June 22 2009 near the office.

The 52 workers, who are contract workers, were told by the Communication Office that they were about to be sacked and that a new workforce with lower wages would replace them.

This strike has been continuing for three days and the workers have written letters to various government offices, including the Labour Office, the Governor-General’s office and the representative of the vali-e faghih [Ayatollah Khamenei].

The workers will be gathering in front of the Governor-General’s office on Thursday June 25 2009 at 9am.

Co-ordination Committee for the Formation of Labour Organisations, 24 June 2009

4.) Zwei lesenswerte Artikel aus dem aktuellen Weekly Worker zum Thema:

– Yassamine Mather: Beginning of the end:

“ …

Those of us who can identify the class composition of demonstrators from their clothes and accents have not had the slightest doubt about the predominance of workers and wage-earners (including teachers, nurses and public employees) on recent protests, but for the benefit of those who have no knowledge of Iran and who keep telling us the demonstrators are ‘middle class’ let me explain some basic facts.

If you live in a country where the ministry of labour claims that over 80% of the workforce are employed on limited contracts and reassures capitalists that by 2010 the figure will have reached 100%, who do you think will join protest demonstrations?

If you live in a country where in the year ending March 2009 despite the repression there were over 4,000 workers’ actions against privatisation and job losses (unemployment stands at 30%, while inflation has reached 25%), including sit-ins, the kidnap of managers, as well as strikes, who do you think will join protest demonstrations?

If you live in a country that has been praised by the International Monetary Fund for its firm pursuit of neoliberal economic policies, all under a certain Mr Ahmadinejad, who do you think will join protest demonstrations?

If you live in a country where teachers and nurses have waged at least four major strikes in the last two years against their government’s economic and political stance, who do you think will join protest demonstrations?

Let us stop talking of the ‘middle class’ nature of these specific protests. However, a number of points have to be considered. Contrary to comments by people such as George Galloway, the Iranian revolution of 1979 was not started by the working class. Students, many of them children of middle class families, initiated the anti-shah protests, which were confined at first to university campuses, and the same students were later in the forefront of the first major demonstrations. It is no secret that the actions of a minority of middle strata can sometimes spark a mass movement.

In 2009, however, the working class has not been slow off the mark – as early as last week the idea of a general political strike has been in the air. It is the left and its activists who have been slow to respond to such calls.

Oil workers have also used well established channels of communication to discuss the possibility of a strike. Meanwhile a general strike has affected the whole of the Kurdish province, with most cities and towns practically closed down. Calls for a nationwide general strike are growing by the day.“

That it was a well planned coup and not something concocted at the spur of the moment can be seen from two observations. Firstly the chorus of Revolutionary Guard commanders who congratulated Ahmadinejad on his certain victory and gave their support for it in the weeks before the election. And, second, by the fact that the official Fars News website declared victory for Ahmadinejad two hours before the polls closed, with a percentage of votes which remained unchanged until the final count.

Ahmadinejad orchestrated his previous victory four years ago like a military operation. This time he announced it like a victorious Caesar, even before the results of the battle could possibly be known. That was no coincidence. He was declaring to the world, and to the Iranian people, that the rule of the ayatollahs is over. The rule of the military-security machinery has begun.

What Ahmadinejad engineered, in alliance with a large section of the security apparatus and a handful of mullahs, was to essentially deprive the clergy of their ability to use elections to increase the power base of their particular factions inside the regime. This was not a flash in the pan. The election coup had been systematically organised over the last 12-15 years. It began with mobilising and the methodical winning of all electable and non-electable organs – starting with the mayorships of major cities (Ahmadinejad is an ex-mayor of Tehran), the municipal council elections, the majles and the presidency of Ahmadinejad in 2005.

In parallel the military-security apparatus became a major economic force in the country. The coup on June 12 was the logical next, and last, step in a long process by which those that called themselves the osulgaran (‘principled’) have been catapulted into undisputed power. The mass protest by the clergy can be explained by the fact that they have been unceremoniously thrown out of the power structure of Iran.

The regime that took power last week showed its fangs early. Not only did the thugs it unleashed beat up protestors, but they smashed their way into the homes of people who had given them sanctuary. They forced their way into university dormitories across the country to wreck everything in sight and indiscriminately beat the students. The arrest of politicians, journalists, students and demonstrators is taking place daily.

The overall aim of the osulgaran faction, to which Ahmadinejad belongs, is to do away with the factional nature of the Iranian regime and have a top-down, unified, military-style government with a population which supports it unequivocally and by acclamation without being allowed to organise in any form. This is to be a united country, under an undivided, single and monolithic regime, preparing for war, with an economy that reflects those aims. The unorganised ‘people’ are to be mobilised when and if necessary to act as fodder for that war.

You can glimpse this structure in the victory speech made by Ahmadinejad a few days after the election. There he dismissed and derided political parties and appealed to the people to stay on the scene to defend the country.

A capitalist regime, using extreme nationalist populist slogans, ruling the country through thugs and being acclaimed by a public not permitted to organise in any form other than what is dictated from above, and with militaristic, adventurist ambitions! Have we not seen this before?

5.) In der aktuellen Jungle World findet mensch ebenfalls zwei lesenswerte Artikel: Freiheit ist keine Metapher von Fathiyeh Naghibzadeh zur Rolle von Frauen in den Protesten und Wähler, Wächter, Widerstand von Jörn Schulz:

„Innerhalb von nur einer Woche ist im Iran eine vorrevolutionäre Situation entstanden. Viele Linke im Westen vermissen nun die ideologische Klarheit. Tatsächlich marschieren derzeit Anhänger Mousavis, die von einer Verwirklichung der islamistischen Ideale träumen, neben säkularen Demokraten, Khomeinisten neben Kommunisten. Doch fast jede revolutionäre Massenbewegung beginnt mit einem solchen Durcheinander und sehr gemäßigten Forderungen, die den Rahmen der herrschenden Staatsdoktrin nicht sprengen. Zu Beginn einer Revolution wissen die meisten Revolutionäre noch gar nicht, dass sie welche sind. Die Französische Revolution begann mit dem Ballhausschwur, in dem die Delegierten noch gelobten, »die wahren Prinzipien der Monarchie« zu erhalten. Die russische Revolution im Jahr 1905 begann mit einer Demonstration, die dem Zaren ein Bittgesuch übergeben wollte.

Ob die iranische Bewegung eine revolutionäre Entwicklung nehmen wird, kann derzeit niemand sagen. Dass sich im Iran nun Frauen im Chador mit Milizionären prügeln, zeigt jedoch, wie groß die Desillusionierung der Bevölkerung und wie tief die Krise des Regimes ist. Unbeschadet wird die »Islamische Republik« die Revolte nicht überstehen, selbst wenn Khamenei sich noch einmal behaupten kann. Sollte Mousavi siegen, bliebe das islamistische System zunächst erhalten. Doch müsste er, schon um sich zu schützen, den Einfluss der Pasdaran zurückdrängen, und die Menschen, die auf den Straßen gekämpft haben, würden eine Rückkehr zu den alten Verhältnissen nicht hinnehmen. Viele ältere Iraner fühlen sich aber bereits an die Revolution der Jahre 1978/79 erinnert, die keineswegs eine rein islamistische Angelegenheit war. Es wäre nicht das erste Mal, dass die Iraner ihre Herrscher und den Rest der Welt überraschen.“

6.) Nachrichten zum heutigen internationalen Aktionstag zur Solidarität mit den ArbeiterInnen im Iran findet mensch hier, nachfolgend ein Auszug daraus zu den Protesten in Indien:

„In a great show of solidarity, workers from ITF-affiliated unions in India have held demonstrations in New Delhi, Mumbai and Lucknow. In Delhi over 500 AIRF railway workers demonstrated at the Jantar Mantar, as police had issued prohibitory orders in the area surrounding the Iranian embassy. The demonstration was addressed by representatives of the AIRF, NRMU and ITF. A delegation was later escorted to the Iranian Embassy where they were met by the Counsellor in the Embassy who accepted the memorandum and promised to forward it to Tehran. There are also reports of a demonstration by the NRMU at Lucknow station in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh. There is a sizeable Shia community in this city.“
